    Thank you. It took two and a half days, but as of today things are working again.

    Latest OS versions - discussions

    I updated my 5th Generation iPad (32 of 128 GB available) as well as my brand new Ultra Watch. Very happy with the watch update, much less so with my iPad. It seems slower, pages take longer to load and on long pages it seems to run out of memory towards the bottom of the scroll with a blank...

    iPad IOS 11.2.5 Cannot set default email account

    Thanks for the reply. It's IMAP and there's no problem with synchronization across my 3 iPads, my iPhone and 2 PCs. The problem is solved and I thank everyone for helping to lead me to the solution.

    iPad IOS 11.2.5 Cannot set default email account

    Thank you. Nailed it. Of the accounts on the iPad, one was carried by Mail, the other carried by it's own app. Deleted the app, added the account to Mail, set the default, and re-installed the app. Now, clicking on the mail to lozenge opens the app, not mail. I'd love to see the coding behind...

    iPad IOS 11.2.5 Cannot set default email account

    Thank you, but as I said, on neither my iPad Air 2 nor my brand new iPad 5th Generation do I have this option. Please see the image.

    iPad IOS 11.2.5 Cannot set default email account

    It used to be: Launch Settings from your Home screen. Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Scroll down and tap Default Account. Tap the account you would like to use as your default mail account. The problem is there is no selection for Default Account. I know I'm missing something, but I can't...

    New Router 2 Band, Multiple iDevices

    Thanks for the reply. But I think this thread is drifting off course. My question was is the iPad 4 capable of using the 5 GHz band?

    New Router 2 Band, Multiple iDevices

    Thanks for the reply. The router is broadcasting both bands with separate SSIDs. I have the two bands set up on two different channels. The iPad 4 in question sees both SSID's but will only join the 2.4GHz band. My main question is, is the radio in the iPad 4 capable of joining the 5GHz band?

    Thanks for the reply. The two bands are already set up as delivered, with separate SSID's.

    New Router 2 Band, Multiple iDevices

    ISP replaced failed Alcatel fiber router with a Nokia Dual Band router. Both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. iPad Air2 and new iPad 5th Generation both connect to the 5GHz band with no problem. iPhone 6 connects to 5GHz as well. Original, ancient iPad (still going strong) and iPhone 5 only connect to...

    WiFi Disconnect and Password Problem

    Thanks for the reply. No it’s not plugged in overnight. But, this is new behavior, at least for me. I never woke up the device to no connection until the latest update.

    WiFi Disconnect and Password Problem

    Ever since the 11.2.1 update, during the night when I'm not using the iPad it loses its WiFi Connection. I'll open the cover and the WiFi icon is missing and I have no connection. I then need to go to Settings and reconnect. to my network. The radio is obviously alive, because it sees my router...

    Locks in Landscape

    ipad Air 2, IOS 10.2.1 Periodically after being left on a table the iPad will be locked in Landscape mode. Only a restart returns portrait mode. Any ideas?

    Air 2 Charging Time

    I live in Cancun, Mexico. Around 130 Volt, 60 Hz wall current. Charging station is basically a platform containing 8 individual outlets on a grounded, circuit protected platform. After reconfiguring, the Air 2 charged from 18% to 100% in 3.5 hours. I now have to examine the charge time on my...

    Air 2 Charging Time

    Thank you so much. You pointed me in what I think may be the right direction. We have a central charging station that has 4 chargers plugged in; one each for an iPhone 4S, an iPhone 5, an iPad 4th generation and an iPad Air 2. The 4th Generation charger is a 10 watt unit while the Air 2 is a 12...

    Air 2 Charging Time

    I'm enjoying my iPad Air 2 and am very satisfied with the battery life. However I am wondering about the time it takes to reach full charge. From 10% to 100% takes over 8 hours. Reviews that I've read indicate much shorter charging times. Can you share your experience wwith regard to a full...

    URLs in mail messages

    Thank you. It works, to a certain degree, possibly because I only have the 16GB iPad. I can toggle between the open message and Safari, but Safari reloads everybtime I return to it. Nevertheless, Mail remains open at the current message, so I got what I wished for. It isn't true multitasking but...

    URLs in mail messages

    I get several daily emails that are aggregates of news items, like The Slatest from Slate Magazine or the Bleacher sports report. The email message will contain 6 to 10 links to articles on the web. Each time I click on a link in the message Mail closes, Safari opens (yet another discussion...

    Getting a NAS - what do I need to think about?

    I use FileBrowser to map my NAS, as well as network shares running on my home server. Easy to NAS to iPad, slightly more difficult to iPad to NAS. But it works.

    I'm lookng for a web browser. Anyone know a great one?

    The big joke here is that no matter what browser you install, Safari will remain the default browser. Somebody emails you a link and you click on it (instead of copying and pasting it into the browser of your choice) and it will open in Safari. There's nothing you can do to change it. The Apple...

    Enabling the Guest Account in Windows is NOT a good idea. Log in to the printer with the same credentials you use to log in to Windows.

    OS4.3 and iPad2 Printing

    The only partially successful solutions that I've found involve sharing a printer attached to a computer that's turned on. It's the computer that's on the network, sharing the printer it's attached to. If I've missed something, please let me know. A true network printer is exactly that; a...

    OS4.3 and iPad2 Printing

    Is the iPad2 which ships with OS 4.3 still limited to the 6 HP printers or can you now print to any wireless printer?

    Have email, camera connection kit and bluetooth issues...ugh!!

    Don't be surprised by AOL IMAP problems. It's probably not not you. It's them. I maintain a couple of AOL IMAP accounts that I access from my iPad, a ThinkPad and a Dell Desktop. I get IMAP timeouts or password requests at least twice a week and it doesn't matter which machine I'm using. AOL's...

    Rear Camera Revealed for iPad 2 in iOS 4.3 Beta, But Will it Be Only 1 Megapixel?

    The high resolultion pictures from Mars are made with a one megapixel camera. " The Mars Rover Camera Lenses were only 1 Megapixel, yet they produced the highest-resolution digital images ever recorded. As Space.com explains: “Anyone who has ever agonized over whether to buy a 3-megapixel or...

    Cant access router ip address from ipad (UK only)

    First, are you sure that's the actual address? Not all routers use that address. If it is, try http://192.168.1.254/ and see if it gets you there.

    Printer

    (Taking off joker cap) I don't think Canon, Brother, Epson, Kodak, Lexmark or Sharp are "upstarts". Moreover, almost any computing device you could buy can map an IP address and send correctly formatted print commands to it, depending on the drivers installed. Any Mac can do it. The "new way of...

    Gee, I forgot that the only company making printers in the whole wide universe is HP. At least according to Apple. I wonder if Jobs is a stockholder?

    Skyfire App Will Soon Be Bringing Flash to Your iPad

    I am just amazed at how my admittedly business and therefore Windows centric viewpoint doesn't make sense to all you Apple fans. I enjoy the iPad's small profile, touchscreen UI and its integration with iTunes as much as any of you. But I maintain if you promote a machine for email and...

    Skyfire App Will Soon Be Bringing Flash to Your iPad

    You skillfully redacted my entry. If you note, I mentioned printing and file sharing, which are much more important to me than Flash, which is on its way out in any case. BTW, here's what Jobs has to say about Flash: "Adobe’s Flash products are 100% proprietary. They are only available from...

    Getting AirPrint to work on all network printers?

    Since my router has several custom settings for things like wireless security and port forwarding, I think I'll pass on this solution. Holding in the reset button for 30 seconds would result in all my wireless devices being disconnected. Since I use password protection and do not use DHCP...
